Donald Trump Struck Down In Court

The Orangutan In Chief has only been in office for a week, and has already had one of his executive orders overturned in federal court. Judge Ann Donnelly of New York overturned Donald Trump's recent orders to deny entrance into the United States to anyone from Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, Yemen, and Syria. Trump was not concerned about his violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, which does not allow discrimination of any immigrant or perspective immigrant based on country of origin or religion. He just created and edict and let it fly. Hundreds of people from those countries were detained at airports until Judge Donnelly set them free. She also reminded those in the courtroom to let her know if those affected were still being detained after her ruling. The stay is temporary, so more court action is sure to follow. Wouldn't it be nice if the United States had a sitting president who was familiar with law?

Private Message To My Latest Known Troll

As anyone who writes and blogs publicly knows, all of us occasionally find ourselves dealing with trolls. Sometimes, these trolls do what they do for entertainment, sometimes they do it because they feel challenged when others fail to agree with their viewpoints. Then, sometimes, they do it to stalk and take revenge for real or imagined slights. At the moment, it appears that your faithful blogger has picked up a troll whose reasons fall into the category of the latter. So please bear with me as I address this person; he/she/them is completely aware of his/her/their identity. This is directed at the troll, not at anyone else. I know that it will be read on this site by the appropriate party.

To my latest troll; I know who you are. I know your name, your location, your employment situation, and your physical address. I am also aware of your criminal history, and that of most of your friends. These are facts I can prove. I made the mistake of trusting you in the past, despite advice to the contrary from quite a few people, many of whom are your own neighbors and workmates. In fact, the relative with whom you share quarters has lost a few friends because of you. Someone who lives near you once asked me to make sure you are never at his home, because of your history. Yes, it preceded you then, and it precedes you now. Back when your problems were mostly petty crimes, I tolerated you; but when I had children, I could no longer afford to do so. Some of your associates are not only shady, but truly disgusting, and any parent who cares for his or her children will shy away from involvement with folks like you, troll. So that is what I did.

Yes, when your friend fled his state of residence because of a warrant for human trafficking and kiddie porn, I turned him in. You've known that for years. But here's the thing: why didn't you turn him in? Wanna know who gave me his location? It was your mother! Why didn't she turn him in? Do you both like that kind of stuff? And after he went to jail, where was your gratitude? Why were you on the wrong side of that issue? That is another reason for any parent to be aware of you.

I really don't care how angry you are with me anymore. I have already accepted you as a complete waste of space, and I do not believe you are ever going to change. I do not have any time for those who support you, or for the defendant described in the paragraph above, either. One thing upon which I will spend time, however, is the good old three for one law. I will also make some of the paperwork that is on file, proving your own history, available for the perusal of those with whom you spend time every day. I will do this every time you contact me, a member of my family, one of my friends or associates, or a member of my community. I promise.

Toni Anderson Missing

Toni Anderson, 20, is missing from Kansas City, Missouri. She left her job as a server at Chrome nightclub, at 4:11 Sunday morning, planning to gas up her vehicle before going home. Before pulling into the gas station, she texted a friend that she had been pulled over by police. There is no record of law enforcement from anywhere pulling her over. That was the last time anyone heard from her. She drives a black, 2014 Ford Focus with Kansas plates 989 GAX. Below are pictures; if you know where she is, please call one of the numbers on the flyer.

Update: Toni Anderson's vehicle was pulled from the Missouri River on Friday, March 10. She was in the vehicle. Condolences to her family, and there will be more on this as the investigation unfolds.

Donald Trump Lacks Manners: Declined Invitations

Wow. A fancy inaugural ball for a flamboyant, rich narcissist, and people already do not want to go. Not even for the forty-fifth president of the United States! John Lewis, (D) Georgia, recently declined and told his constituents that he wasn't going because he felt that the election was not won honestly. That was all; he just didn't want to go. This is the same John Lewis who marched with Martin Luther King Jr. in Selma on March 7, 1965, and was beaten black and blue by law enforcement. Instead of thanking Lewis for his devotion to his country and for responding to the invitation, Trump got on Twitter and insulted Lewis and his district, referring to Lewis's district, Atlanta, Georgia, as a "shambles" and "crime infested". Not only has Trump forgotten that New York is a rather "crime infested", as well; he has completely breached etiquette for a president in such a situation. Rather than responding to the declined invitation on Twitter, it would have been much more gracious for incoming President Trump to simply send Congressman Lewis a hand written note expressing regret at the declined invitation and hope to work with Lewis soon. That is all that needs to be said by a president when an invitation is declined.

At this writing, there are twenty-three United States senators and congressmen declining invitations to the inaugural ball, and the list is growing. There is also a list of dignitaries planning to give the swearing in ceremony a miss. This is a big deal, and should serve as a wake-up call to the president elect concerning etiquette and manners when an invitation is either accepted or declined. Donald Trump should, by this time, understand that there are many, many people who shy away from circus atmospheres and do not care to attend unruly events hosted by the nouveau riche. Haven't Trump's rallies already been violent enough?
